The TransUnion we know today began when a railcar leasing company by that name decided in 1969 to buy Chicago’s ancient bureau, the Credit Bureau of Cook County, and then subsequently gobbled every other local bureau they could through the 1970s and 1980s. Interestingly, TransUnion today is privately owned by the famous Pritzker family (of Hyatt Hotels fame) and their tony friends through a mysterious-sounding multi-billion dollar entity called the Marmon Group. Lucky bunch. Apparently, buying and selling personal information about others is a highly profitable enterprise. Perhaps the Pritzker grandchildren will never need to hire Repair My Credit Now to achieve credit repair.
